I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at canfield scientific (Parsippany, NJ) in September 2017.
I applied online back in late August. I received a phone call (out of the blue) from HR about a week later to do a phone interview on the spot. I obliged and I thought things went well considering that I had no time to prepare. This was your basic, general phone screen whereby the interviewer asked me to tell her about myself, my future work plans, and why I wished to work for Canfield. I was then told that IF the hiring manage felt I was a strong candidate, I'd be brought in for an in-person interview.
After about 1-1/2 weeks later, now mid-September, I received an email requesting that I came in for the in-person interview that was to take place a little over a week from then. I was instructed to do my due diligence by researching the company, review the attached job description (it was not attached, and supplied the address and contact name.
Once I arrived, I was greeted by two very young receptionists who handed me a clipboard with paperwork I needed to fill out, which was more than the average. I also noticed a third young lady who was seemingly "caught" at the phone desk and proceeded to leave in a flash, as if I was going to "report" her for standing around. After I handed back my paper work and waited for about 10-15 minutes, the same young lady came back to escort me to the interview room. Not sure why she felt she needed to make such an abrupt exit, but I laughed about it with her while we walked into the back.
The first interview was basically listening to all the benefits the company has to offer and this person asked if I had any questions so I kept to the subject of HR and asked her a few other details. She then proceeded to tell me that I would then meet with another HR manager.
After waiting about another 10 minutes, another young lady came in who asked me in-depth questions, like, "describe yourself in one word, tell me more about yourself and what type of work you like. If you had to describe one situation that did not work out, what would that be like?" She seemed pretty impressed with my responses and thusly moved on. I was then told that the actually manager of the department was going to come in next.
Fast forward to about an hour later (this is after speaking to both ladies) and waiting another 10 minutes for the department manager to come in. Once he arrived, he did not understand why it took so long for him to be asked to come in to interview me. I am guessing because perhaps their signals crossed and I was supposed to meet him sooner, perhaps along with the second HR manager? Anyway, he was a bit strange and asked me to "tell him who the real (fill in my name) is all about". I proceeded to answer and was interrupted with, "stop using buzz words and nonsense jargon and simply answer the question!" This really threw me as I wasn't doing what he said, but I was telling him who I am...was he asking me to start talking "street?" This is definitely not me so why would I? Was he asking me to not speak properly? Again, not me. So I tried to say some things about my personal life to keep it light.
After another hour passed (I was now at Canfield for 2 hours), he ended our conversation with telling me about another position that was going to open up. However, this was NOT at all aligned with what I like to do nor my skill-set. I thanked him for considering me and assured him that I truly liked project management and this is where I felt most comfortable along with having many, many years of experience.
